Pontesbury Methodist Chapel is part of the Central Area of the Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit. For information about service times, view the preaching plans on the Service Times page. Information about ministers can be found on the Our Team page.

In 1834 a Wesleyan Chapel was opened on Pontesbury Hill. It was replaced 63 years later with a new building on the adjacent ground. 1932 saw the old building demolished and a school room built. Early 1980’s was the reuniting of the Zion Methodist Church and the Wesleyan Methodists to become Pontesbury Methodist Church. Pastoral oversight of this chapel is with Revd. Shalome MacNeill Cooper, minister for the Rea Valley area.

Limited parking is available in front of the chapel or at the base of the hill. This building has limited accessibility for those with mobility issues.


This chapel offers many church and community functions such as Breakfast worship, community dinners, and has a wonderful hall with a stunning fireplace- a natural gathering place for many.

Worship services are held most Sunday Mornings at 10:45.

Celtic Communion- Celtic Style Communion is offered during select Communion Sundays of the year.
